Join the Summer Reading Program and Dig into Reading. Our Thursday film at 6 p.m. The Secret Garden will enthrall young readers and old.

Posted on: June 3, 2013

The Murphy Library’s film program is partnering with Youth Services librarian Bridget Wilson and the Summer Reading Program.  Her theme this year is “Dig into Reading” and Thursday’s film The Secret Garden digs into an English garden with three of the smartest children who ever walked through the pages of a book.  The film is rated G and will be screened at 6 p.m. and running time is 101 minutes.  This is a film for the young and not-so-young – whatever your age, The Secret Garden will enthrall you!

Mary is a young English girl living with her parents in India.  When they are killed in an earthquake she must return to England where her wealthy but emotionally distant uncle takes her in.  There seems to be no place for love or laughter in his huge mansion.  But one thing is for sure, Mary is not afraid to explore.  Who knows what secrets she will find in this house.

Filming locations capture the beauty of England in such places as North Yorkshire’s Fountains Abbey, Eton College in Berkshire and Harrow School in Middlesex.  Call 837-2417.
